You can send some extra good vibes with an e-card or an old fashioned paper card. For virtual greeting cards: Go to canva.com Follow sign up or login instructions Search 'card’ templates in the search bar or create a card from scratch Include a nice message such as: "Just a friendly little hello from me to you" "Hi there! Just felt like sharing a smile with you today" "Just wanted to send some happy thoughts your way today" "Take extra good care!" "Sending good, healthy vibes your way" "Wishing you well" "Sending hugs and love" "Thinking of you at this time" Have fun and be as creative as you would like! Email your cards to people you know - and send a copy of the card to ys@scvolunteercenter.org - and we'll send them out to seniors in our network Create a physical greeting card: Create a card to show support for those feeling isolated Use colored paper, stickers, markers, and other supplies to create an uplifting card.
